Default Fixing a FTBFS bug - unresponsive maintainer

Hello,

there is a pretty easy to fix FTBFS bug but the maintainer doesn't
really react on anything.
Does anyone knows how to contact him through other channels? I know that
he's present in some fedora irc channels as 'SmootherFrOgZ' but didn't
receive a reply there either.

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=631372

Perhaps a provenpackager could have a look at this and add this one line
to fix the bug.

Thanks in Advance!

Johannes

Are you a Fedora Packager yet? The proper fix would be for you to
request 'commit' access to the package,

http://bugz.fedoraproject.org/tilda
-> https://admin.fedoraproject.org/pkgdb/acls/name/tilda

and there is a series of tickets that have not been replied to yet
either.

A provenpackager jumping in for just one FTBFS would be a short-term
solution only. It would not fix the problem of packages being
unmaintained and bugzilla tickets being ignored.

I will do that for the time being. I know Xavier is quite busy have you
tried to contact him directly ?
